~ The Loss ~

"We lost," Greg said firmly. "How did we lose? That bet should've been a sure thing." 

"You know your wife is going to disown you now, right?" I shuffled nervously, my hands glued into my pockets from the unbearable heat. 

Greg frowned at me. "I'll find a way out of this mess. Somehow, some way. I don't want to lose her. I CAN'T lose her." He began mumbling and sweating profusely.

Worried about him, all I wanted to do was reassure him. The words stuck in my throat - I felt like we were out in the Sahara. I was out a lot of money, too. But I didn't have a wife - I only had myself to worry about. 

Pacing back and forth, Greg looked too pale for being out in the sun all day. I looked up - and saw his wife marching our way.

Not my best work, but I was in a hurry, eep.

  1. This is so much fun! I'll have to join in one of these Fridays. I definitely don't want to be around when the wife finds out what happened. I hope all is well...kids, family, you. Oh, and our teams rocked it today, huh? My family cheered your team on.
